Artists in the two Germanys redeployed the traditions of abstraction and realism in new national and international contexts, creating a wide range of powerful artworks that often responded to political events, popular culture, and changes in technology and reproduction." "Art of Two Germanys/Cold War Cultures is the catalogue for a groundbreaking international exhibition that reveals for the first time the contribution of both Germanys to the development of modern and contemporary art. This substantial and profusely illustrated book, with seventeen important essays by major art historians and cultural critics as well as a chronological overview of the history Of East and West Germany, is the first comprehensive look at the scope of postwar German painting, photography, sculpture, video, and performance art. It includes work by more than 120 artists."--BOOK JACKET.
